Went to Certo for dinner for the first time after 5 years. We had stopped going there because the quality of the food and the service were deteriorating at the time and decided to give it a try hoping for positive changes. The menu has been revamped and now offers more value than previously and the selection is not huge,... More

Spent a wonderful evening in Certo @ the Radisson Blu Hotel Media City, celebrating a birthday with good friends. The food was amazing & the service was excellent! The chef personally came out to chat with us regarding food intolerance & allergies at our table and gave us plenty of other options to choose from. Best Panna Cotta in town!... More

We came to Certo this past Friday expecting their old style Friday brunch where we were quietly served at our table from a variety of different dishes. What we got instead was a very noisy, crowded, buffet-style party brunch. The music at Certo itself wasn't too bad but the music and noise from Icon next door was too much for... More

This a 100% traditional Italian restaurant with great wine selection. Do some research on Italian cuisines if you want to try authentic Italian food. For general visitors this restaurant serves nice and tasty pizza, pasta and noodles.

Certo is a bright spot for the restaurant in Dubai. We love it. Food is nice and very tasty. We loved the tuna tartare! As a pizza fanatic, I found the "Certo version" very satisfying. Staff was very welcoming, engaging and professional. We both loved the place and we definitely come back!
